The Ticwatch S and E drift from the original design in order to offer a more affordable option, but does the price effect the quality?

I wish you guys could do a follow-up with the E. I went with the Samsung Gear S3 classic.. love the look and feel, absolutely hate the ecosystem. No Google music, maps etc etc... How on Earth is Samsung getting rave reviews with their proprietary junk. The Ticwatch E looks great.
I still use the Huawei Watch with a Milanese band because no one has ever made a true replacement for it.
Got it at launch a free years ago, used it every day and it still works really well.
I find that the secret to battery life is turning on ambient display only when you need it and power it off overnight. It lasts me about 4-5 days like that.
Normally it still only lasts 1.5 days of continuous use with ambient display on.
I got the E for 100 bucks on Kickstarter and so far I'm very happy with it. I'd love for the battery to last longer but as long as the hardware doesn't fail on me too soon it is an amazing watch for that price.
Thanks for explaining about these two items. My LEMFO Y3 Android 5.1 smart watch was giving me so much trouble that I got a Series 2 Apple watch. I love it, but miss the custom watch skins I had like Seiko, Panerai and others on the Y3. Can 3rd party watch faces be downloaded to the Tics? Thank you.
Right. But have you seen negative reviews on Amazon? Even your demo model "E" crapped out on you.
Today model "E" is going for $128 with the coupon offered on their site. People are complaining this is actually lower than Kickstarter early bird deal! I was getting excited about the price, but decided not to buy, after reading the reviews. Looks like lottery type gamble on quality.
I'd rather have Google Assistant than S Voice, and since I can't get the HERE WeGo maps for the Gear S3, Android Wear just might be the better way to go. Luckily this is a (fairly) cheap way to find out how much I'll like it
Got it few days back for ~130 USD, watch is great at this price point, , but i wish if they had used steel or unbreakable plastic for watch dial so prevent any breakage in future, will be worth the money if runs fine for 2 years hopefully, found some cool watch faces too, check in below - https://youtu.be/Z92HdYAu3gc
Android wear is failing due to a bad app experience. Most smartwatch apps are low quality while costing a lot. When you get one, you will soon find that after 2-3 apps, there is really nothing out there to get.
Hey Josh where did you get your Kali Method Tee? I kickstarted the Ticwatch E version, and so far no issues with the display. It is perfect for what I am looking for in a smartwatch and very affordable. Great review as always.
I think I'd like this as I would like a smart watch but don't really want to spend more than $200 on one. Mostly because I don't think I'd use many features Beyond the basics Which the ticwatch seems to offer.
The problem with Android Wear is that there are no affordable options, everything is either of comparable price to the Apple Watch (which is a far better product with far better support), or it's even more expensive (£450 for major brand smart watches, let alone the designer stuff). All I want is an affordable smart watch for under £200, preferably £150, that has NFC for Android Pay, a HRM, and is waterproof for morning showers.
I have the black ticwatch S and it looks fine as a casual, everyday watch. It has a good screen and the interface is fast and fluid but the battery life isn't great. I can just about get a day from it, even with Mobvoi's battery conditioning tips. By comparison my 2nd gen Moto 360 can last two days easily but it feels slow next to the newer ticwatch S.
Nico Berrutti I have a Tcwatch S paired with my Note 8, and I haven't had any problems with it. It works great. If you want higher quality, I would recommend getting the Samsung Gear S3. Tizen doesn't really have that many apps compared to Android Wear so take that into consideration when buying a smartwatch. On Android Wear you can port apk files from the Play Store onto the watch, which can't be done on Samsung smartwatches, due to Tizen.
ytxstream but it's ok comparing it to other smart watches, it is affordable of course, but I dont want a phone on my wrist, if I want a smartwacth it will be to have a music controller on it for my phone
For 130 i got the E i am very pleased. I dont feel that plastic you all youtubers talking about. Its feels super solid as a watch. If you dont like it go spend 350$ for a better one. About the screen i don't know much, i hope it stays as it is.
Bought the TicWatch E on Amazon when they had a deal at ~$130, and I couldn't be happier. Storing music, tracking my run, without having to carry my phone is awesome!
Sucks that their review unit went wonky...
tako I don't know why you're mad about this. You said the whole point of a smartwatch is to manage notifications and the gear s3 does that pretty well, as well as an excellent battery life, a solid build quality, and great fitness tracking capability.
I recieved my s3 as a gift but if I didn't have it already I would definitely buy one.
Jack Dren If you wanted a watch then you should have purchased an actual watch, not a smartwatch. It's not about having "too much apps" but having a selection that you can choose from and not have it limited but your OS. A smartwatch's entire purpose is to help you manage your notification from your phone.
I just bought a new smartwatch for $25 isn't the best but it gets the job done. People are starting to stop buying smartwatches because they essentially all do the same thing and mines is not different
Meh I'm coming from the 35.00 smartwatch to the 129.99 one. They are loads different. The cheap ones are okay if you just wanna be notified but the more expensive ones are really worth the price,and offer a much better experience.
Free christmas advice for everyone: Don't ever wear a smartwatch with any formal outfit unless you wanna look like a freakin NEEEEEEEEEEEEEERD, also always remember to shave both sides of your mustache
